A sandwich at grandmas


I recently read a book called: Life is Good at Grandma’s, written by Stacey Donovan and illustrated by Cary Phillips.. In this book, they talk about Life is good at Grandma’s, because you can check the rules at the door. The book later goes on to talk about how the kitchen is full of your favorite foods, and how only grandma knows how to make your supersecret favorite sandwich.

Bobcats bite; a burger eaters delight


on a recent trip to santa fe we went to a local burger joint named bobcat bite. it’s a little bit outside of town but it’s famous for its green chili burgers.

it has been featured on the food network a number of times in the owners are very nice people. They don’t have a lot of seating and there are only 8 seats at the bar. We got there a little on the earlier side, but that is only because my Aunt and Uncle know that this place filled up. They don’t serve a whole lot more than meat here. but they know what they are doing, and they do it well. This place is famous for its green chili burger, so that is what I ordered; medium rare.

A double sandwich kind of day in the mountains


sometimes you’re lucky enough to be able to eat 2 sandwiches in the same day and you get to hang out with friends. a couple of weeks ago my friends and I went to ski in the sky chutes,

and I brought a sandwich.

don’t worry I put it in a sandwich protector so it wouldn’t get ruined.

after skiing the y chute we all sat around at the bottom and ate our

lunches. I

busted out my turkey sandwich with

lettuce,

mushrooms,

garlic

and a shitake vinegerette

on a

whole grain bread. It was

lightly toasted.

I couldn’t pile the meat on super thick, because I didn’t want to risk crushing the sandwich with the sandwich protector.
Given that it was after hiking, and after a little bit of survival skiing, and the sandwich was cold, it was still pretty tasty. This is a picture of it before it got eaten…

Then we got on a bus, and my friend Hans fell asleep…. He did not eat as good of a sandwich as I did, so he was not as strong.

After a bus ride and a short car ride, we ended up at the Breckenridge Brewery in Breckenridge. I have been here a number of times when folks come in from out of town, or after a day of skiing or a hut trip or something. They have good beers, good food, and they had on college basketball. I generally only care about 2 of those things. But, in case you are wondering, there are a couple of locations of the Breckenridge Brewery. Well, after some time of looking at the menu, debating as to whether or not this day was actually worthy of the title of the Sandwich Duo, I decided I wanted one of the things on this menu…

Can you guess what I got? It was the fried chicken sandwich, asian style…..
image

I think that I was expecting more of an actual fried chicken, not just a fried breaded chicken cutlet… I think my mind was hoping for more along the lines of a crispy fried chicken, but when it got there, I was suddenly hungry again, and the sandwich highly complemented my glass of water and my agave wheat ale.

While the sandwich looked like it was missing things, there was sauce, onions, lettuce, tomato, chicken, and a pretty thick bun. The sauce was some sort of terriyaki/hoisen/soy sauce blend that had been reduced. It tasted ok, but didn’t blow me out of the water. Maybe it was because my body and taste buds were tiered, and maybe its because the sandwich just needed something. Anyway, I ate it, and I would eat it again.

Remember when you were much younger and your imagination ran wild and chunk comes up and is about to pass out because he is winded and scared and he smells like he might have crapped himself but you aren’t really sure, but he is blabbering about there being bullet holes in the back of a jeep 4×4?

Remember when you tried to look for one eyed willy, but you ended up having to deal with a crazy old lady who threatened to cut out your friends tounge, and a couple of brothers that reminded you of a bad slapstick comedy? Well, I don’t either, but I do remember watching the movie Goonies enough times to think that it may have actually been a part of my reality.
